Baseball management sim Out of the Park 11 hits a home run -- on Linux!
OOTP is an extremely popular and successful franchise, and its new releases have consistently garnered high praise from game review sites. It's arrival on Linux is certainly a big deal, since games of OOTP's stature typically don't bother with the platform. Does this mean other popular titles will follow? I'd expect so, though it will probably be a drizzling more than a downpour of new releases.
So what's new in Out of the Park 11? Among other things, possibly the greatest time-sink ever added to the game: historical play mode. You can now replay every single baseball season from 1871 right up 'till 2009. The interface has also been given some major upgrades and in-game control now includes issuing signals to your runners.
Now if only it allowed you to send the slap-wipe-pinch-slap-tap-wink-slap-slap via your webcam. That'd be sweet.
OOTP 11 sells for $39.99 and it's ready for online purchase now -- for Windows, Mac, and Linux!
